Water Damage to Hardwood Floors? We Can Help!

6/18/2021 (Permalink)

Wood floor. In some cases, we can save your hardwood floors.

How Water Warps Hardwood Flooring 

When water floods areas with hardwood floors, the material tries to absorb the water. Excessive moisture forces the wood to expand, which can cause warping or cupping. Here at SERVPRO, we always encourage water damage victims to extract as much water as possible while they wait for help to arrive. 

Saving Water Wet Hardwood Floors 

In some cases, we can save your hardwood floors. If the water is quickly extracted and there is not significant warping, then we can use a drying process specifically designed for hardwood floors. But if the flooring was exposed to moisture for a significant period of time and shows major signs of warping, then your hardwoods will need to be removed and replaced. 

Call Professionals Before It is Too Late 

While it is possible to save your water-damaged hardwood flooring, time is a critical factor. If you notice water damage in your home, call a professional cleanup and restoration company like our team here at SERVPRO of West Sterling Heights. We offer 24/7 emergency restoration services. Call us today at 586-480-2400.
